BUG: Video loopback broken with kernels 2.6.38 and above

These kernels no longer support v4l1. I found a v4l2loopback at but motion fails with it with:

Jul 13 13:38:48 wile motion: [1] ioctl (VIDIOCGPICT): Invalid argument Jul 13 13:38:48 wile motion: [1] Failed to open video loopback

it appears to be attempting to talk to it with V4L1 calls.

Paste in your error messages, config settings, terminal window output etc in this text field.


Motion version: 3.2.12
ffmpeg version: 0.8.0
Shared libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS:

Follow up

Indeed , vloopback needs to be upgraded to work with v4L2 and integrate this in motion.
